Santa Clara Central Park, Thursday, September 7, 2017

After so many very hot days, it was delightful that we got a cooler day for our paintsite at Santa Clara's Central Park.  It remained cloudy throughout our painting time, and even a few raindrops fell just as we had set out our paintings for our sharing time.  It only rained for about a minute or two, just long enough to force us to grab all our paintings and put them back under the canopy of the Pavilion.  Central Park is large with picnic Pavilion, creek, bridges, International Swim Center, lawn bowling green, lots of attractive trees, multiple children's playgrounds, and the Central Park Library.  The feature that beckoned to most of the artists was the duck pond with fountains, waterfall, and peninsula landscaped with lots of blooming flowers.
